Class descriptions

Beginning

This class is for puppies (12 weeks and older) and young adults who have had little to no training. Basic skills are introduced, including proper leash walking, sit, down, stay, come, leave it, and drop it. Polite manners with other animals and humans in general are practiced.

Intermediate

This is a continuation of the beginning class. We built up the "stay" and "come" skills with much higher distraction levels. Much of the class will be done off leash if possible. Hand signals, wait command, stand-for-grooming and handling is included. This class prepares dogs for the Canine Good Citizen test.

Agility

Martina and Patrick doing agility work

Dog agility is a sport in which the dog and owner work together to complete complicated obstacle courses, where they are scored for both time and accuracy. This course introduces the basics of agility training. This class is a great way to improve a dog's confidence, and it's the funnest class out there. You and your dog must have completed a beginning class in order to enroll in this class.
